Now President Trump continues to whine that Democrats during his state of the union address did not stand and clap for him, and agrees with critics who said that was "treasonous."
Who does he think he is? Another Rocket Man?
Here's what Trump said to a crowd in Cincinnati on Monday:
"They were like death and un-American. Un-American. Somebody said, 'treasonous.' I mean, Yeah, I guess why not? Can we call that treason? Why not? I mean they certainly didn't seem to love our country that much."
I guess he doesn't recall how Republicans sat on their hands when President Obama gave his state of the union addresses and took credit for his actual accomplishments. Here's what happened in 2015.
But what really scares me is the idea that Trump would even agree with some nutcase Republican Congressman -- even in a half-hearted joking manner -- that not applauding him could amount to treason or, for that matter, even be "un-American."
Who does he think he is? Another Kim Jong-Un? Kim reportedly had his own uncle executed because he did not applaud sufficiently when Kim was named vice chairman of North Korea's central military commission in 2013.
In fact, taking a lesson from that, members of Congress -- especially Democrats -- or even members of his own administration had better show proper respect and pay attention to our fearless leader if they don't want the same fate to befall them as happened to Kim's Defense Minister, Hyon Yong-Chol.
That poor slob was murdered with a ZPU-4 anti-aircraft gun because he fell asleep in meetings and talked back to Kim!
Now I'm not saying that Trump is as wacko as Rocket Man, but the idea that he would even entertain the concept that not standing and clapping for him is to commit treason is scary, indeed. Consider the actual definition from federal law:
Somebody needs to tell Trump that we live in a democracy, not a dictatorship, and that our Constitution guarantees the right of free speech -- despite his objections.
